    Wanted: Blower Housing

    About 6 years ago I ripped out my old non-functioning AC system that had been sitting empty for 15 years and swapped in a couple of ranger parts to make it heat only. At the time I lived in a cold wet place and never envisioned needing AC. Fast-forward to the present and I find myself living in...

    Max AC slowly stops blowing

    Hey folks. My 95 Explorer has well running regular AC, but just this past week when I set it to MAX, it changes over and blows fine for a few seconds and then slowly something closes and no more air of any kind blows. You can feel something slowly closing as the air goes from blowing hard to...

    2007 sport Trac a/c reduced max setting air flow

    Just had the a/c wiring harness changed that includes the vacume reservoir and the check valve. Now when I switch to Max a/c the volume of air is reduced and sometimed nothing comes out. I thought it might be the blend door or actuator but that just controls heat and cold temp not the air...

    02 Explorer XLT A/C controls not functioning

    Searched threads to no avail, sorry if this is duplicate post. 02 Explorer, 107K Miles. Recently replaced a/c clutch & recharged system. The "air direction" dial has been a little finicky since I got it at 102K miles. A week ago, a seal blew somewhere in the system (I have yet to find where)...

    A/C evaporator leak on a three year old car?

    Our Explorer had 36,700 miles on it and "in service" time was three years one month. The A/C quit blowing cold and the dealer says evaporator is leaking. I thought Ford might cover it under the 36K/3 year warranty because it was so close but they would not, despite me pleading my case on their...

    AC Blower super loud

    The AC works, and I am happy with that. However, settings 1 and 2 are like someone has a coffee stirrer straw lightly blowing through it to cool me off. Setting 3 is decent, but not strong enough for my liking. Setting 4 (the final setting) is like turning it up to volume 11! It has a very...

    1994 Explorer XLT AC leak...

    Hey all! I'm new here. Finally became a member because I've got a question. I've got a 1994 Explorer XLT. It had been sitting in a garage for a number of years before I bought it. That was last October. Since I live in Idaho the AC hadn't really been too much of a concern. Now I'm down in...

    AC Compressor clutch issues.

    My AC compressor belt spinning the compressor seems to engage and disengage every 10 or 15 seconds whether is is on or of.. So I am assuming that it is a problem with the clutch. I know that this is probably not be a sport trac specific issue and I will go elsewhere to find the answer but this...

    AC cold then compressor short cycles

    Replaced all AC components. Filled with R134A. From a cold start AC works fine. Once the system is shut off, the compressor goes into short cycling mode. Let the vehicle cool down for 30 minutes AC works fine. Shut the AC or the vehicle off and the compressor goes into short cycling and air not...

    AC blows hot when hot outside

    I have read through infinite forums looking for help, and it seems like I'm running out of things to try. My 99 Explorer blows hot air from the AC when it's hot outside. I have checked pressure and both HI and Low are in the ballpark. I replaced the relay, the clutch cycling switch, and have...

    A/C issues

    Hey folks, Big thanks to the active forum members. This is a great place for fellow lovers of the Explorer. I have been having A/C issues for some time. Now I'm sure most of you at this point are already thinking to yourself "blend door actuator" but I don't believe that is the problem. My A/C...

    Hey folks, Been researching all day and have learned a lot of good stuff. Man this site is a valuable resource. My air within my air conditioning system does not change vents. A tiny bit of air is coming out of the main vents, but most air is coming out of the defrost vents up by the...

    AC is hot, low side pressure ok???

    I've searched the forum for a couple days, but I'm not sure what to do. Apologies if this has been covered already. My AC blows warm, but everything else works. I got an AC pro kit, and measured the low side pressure, which was only slightly low. I filled it, rechecked, and nothing. Waited a...

    My car experienced AC failure in the Central Valley, it was approx. 97 outside and the AC just stopped working. I had to do a master reset on the Sync a few days earlier, not sure what effect that had if at all. The car was also shaking and jumping a lot when my foot was off the petal...

    AC/Heating only works on cold

    Hi All, My 2008 Explorer is making a clicking noise when using AC or heat if I do not keep the temp control almost all the way on the cold side. If I move it we get a non-stop clicking/ticking noise from in the dash. Any thoughts one how I can determine what the problem is and fix it? Thanks...
